water protection strips

Assessment of environmental conditions within the limit of the riparian water protection strips using the WEBGIS technology

Abstract. The goal of this research is the assessing of the current conditions of water protection strips in their role as an effective buffer that prevents water bodies from deteriorating due to soil erosion and pollution. In base of this study the action plan is developing to improve the conditions of the water protection strips for the lakes. The  approach focused on the idea of an empirical study (based on observations and field measurements) on the environmental quality.
